Women’s hockey adds 10 recruits for upcoming season

The Ravens women’s hockey team has added 10 new players for this upcoming season. The team will be hoping to snap their four-year-long playoff drought and to improve on its disappointing 4-14-2 record from the 2016 season. On the offensive side the Ravens have added five new players to the team. Carleton finished last season in last place in goals per game in the Réseau du Sport Étudiant du Québec (RSEQ) and 26th in the U Sports rankings with 1.95 goals per game.

Kohler among latest men’s basketball recruits

One of the most challenging aspects of building a dynasty like the Carleton Ravens men’s basketball team is dealing with roster turnover. The roster constantly changes over several seasons as players graduate and earn their degrees. This emphasizes the importance of recruiting as players must come in and step up as the veterans depart. One of the latest additions to the Ravens line-up is six-foot-nine center William Kohler, from Winnipeg, MB. Before joining the Ravens, Kohler played for his high school basketball team at Oak Park High School in Winnipeg. “We weren’t just playing basketball for fun [at Oak Park],” Kohler said. “It was pretty competitive, not as competitive as Carleton, but that environment that we were in, it was […]

Women’s hockey splits games in Pembroke

The Carleton Ravens women’s hockey team played the Queen’s Gaels in two preseason games on Oct. 1 and 2 at the Pembroke Memorial Centre, splitting the series with one win each.

Golden Hawks upset Ravens at Homecoming

The Carleton Ravens football team fell to the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks by a score of 17-16 during a rainy day at MNP Park as part of the Ravens’ homecoming game. After the game, Ravens head coach Steve Sumarah said turnovers were one of the factors in the Ravens’ loss. “You can’t win games when you turn the ball over as much as we did,” he said. “It’s a short season, we have no choice to move on, we will review the film and bounce back for next week.” Late in the opening quarter, Ravens quarterback Jesse Mills threw an interception at Laurier’s eight-yard line, though the Ravens were able to force a safety on the following play and gain […]
